Now that my tank is cycled we are trying to decide what fish we want. Tell me if these are good a choices. And tell me what order to purchase them.

a pair of clowns mine and my daughter picked
foxface son picked
goby son picked
kole tang mine and daughter picked

My husband hasn't chosen one yet.

Sorry for how the post was written. I typed it at work last night in the middle of night and I didn't realized how poorly written it was. Anyway, I can't remember what kind of goby it was, my son saw it in a book we have. I will need him to point it out again. The reason I picked the kole tang is because it is ok to be in a 75g tank, so I read. I like the naso tang the best but I will have to wait for a bigger tank. We have 125g sitting in the basement. If 75g goes well and when we finish the basement then we may start 125g aggressive tank. Tang, puffer, lionfish, etc. Of course, that would be a year or two away.

The kole tang is a perfect choice. Everything sounds good. A pink spotted goby is my favorite.

He is cute. I'll have to point him to my son and see if that's the one.

I like these gobies, from liveaquaria, you can pair them with a pistol shrimp:
